Be sure to follow through with the same steps that the professionals do to ensure freshness. Use a quality flower sealant to mist your flower heads.
You can green up your centerpieces several days in advance. Just be sure to keep the container full of water. Simply pop your flowers in a day or two in advance of the day needed. Quality flowers inserted into centerpiece Oasis on a Thursday and kept cool and watered will last right thru a Saturday wedding. Remember fresh cut flowers are meant to stay good under normal conditions for at least a week!
